I listened to an interview about this on TheBlaze Friday.  They said there is a lot of worry about what Snowden has and hasn't revealed - yet.

Suggests to me that he hasn't even dropped half the shoe-store yet.

That's what they said.  Seems the government has a very good idea what he has and they are nervous to the point talking amnesty if he'll turn it over and shut up...  one of the panelists is a former CIA guy.

And if he agrees, the instant the opportunity arises, Snowden will mysteriously "commit suicide" or die in a "freak accident."

The other problem is that (at least if Snowden was smart, and I believe he is), the documents are now no longer "only in his hands" -- but in the hands of selected others, who may choose to NOT give back the information.

What has been revealed so far is damning.

What other surprises are hidden there?

Let them see the light of day.

I don't fear what the information could do to damage this country.
The information that has already been revealed has shown considerable damage, but it's not "our enemies" who are doing it.

It is being done by those in whom we have put our trust.

The omelet has probably already been made, so the NSA probably can't unscramble the eggs, even if Snowden decided for some odd reason to help them try.

If Snowden is smart - and all indications are that he is - he'll cut a deal with Russia. Faked death, new identity and back to the jolly old USA to live out his life in his native country. Of course, on news of his death, third parties such as Wikileaks will release "all" the information.

Not exactly moral, but something I'd do. You got two options when holding a primed grenade. Throw it or be blown up.

Unfortunately, he faces the same consequences if he doesn't...
